If you want the 2.25 ratio you need the TA05 rear and front pulleys. They are 36T instead of 35T as on original MSX. The center pully has 16T on both TA05 and MSX. You then get 36/16=2.25 instead of original MSX 35/16=2.187

The TA05 fixed center pully is 8-9 grams lighter...and should make a difference according to the experts...

I had a crack at resolving the width issue with running the TA05 pulley with a 415 1 way. I saw someone had cut off the ridge holding the eccentric bearing carrier in place, but i thought this might make bearing alignment difficult, so i had a go at narrowing the ridge instead of simply cutting it off, with a small dremel wheel at low speed i was able to narrow up the flange, and then used a flat file to smooth up the surface so that it will sit nice and flat against the bulkhead again. Now the diff has a nice tolerance of around a shims width. The drivetrain also felt slightly smoother.

took some time but was pretty simple, and the result is perfect. Hope this helps those with the tight 1way issue.

Lokks like Ed will spend more time hunting down men than racing. Hope there are big bushes round the track cuz I wouldn't like to get a glimpse of what's happening

Yeah Ed I know what you're gonna say : G _ _

I have just fitted my TA05 front pully to my one way and all i did was put the oneway half's on a lathe and touch the faces of where the pully mounts with the cutter. All fits very nice now and only needed a thou off.

Need to source a rear pully now as champ were out of stock of them.

Thanks for the tips...8-9 grams seems like a big difference in rotating mass between the TA05 & 415 pulley

I love the fact that you guys over in the UK will race rain or shine...how about some photos of the 415's running in wet weather conditions for us to enjoy?

Just to clarify, you need the whole TA05 centre pulley arrangement, including the spur mount. you put it together exactly the same as the TA05 setup, but im sure you can use the 415 shaft. the shaft is the only part from the 415 that u need. Pretty sure thats right. Check out the TA05 manual for how its arranged. Very basic
